New IUCN-CEESP Newsletter


The International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s Commission on Environmental, Economic and Social Policy’s (IUCN-CEESP) latest newsletter was released in May. The newsletter reports on the activities of IUCN-CEESP’s members and partners from around the world and also includes policy articles and reports.

The comments from the Chairperson, Aroha Te Pareake Mead, focus on preparations for the upcoming Rio +20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. The newsletter also spotlights events ICUN-CEESP is hosting during the conference. Updates include preparations for the World Conservation Congress and the International Indigenous Development Research Conference and a report back from the Planet Under Pressure conference. Articles consider possible indicators for REDD+ impact on indigenous and local communities, the beneficiaries of international land deals, and case studies on participatory environmental governance. The newsletter also highlights Natural Justice’s ‘Biocultural Community Protocols: Toolkit for Community Facilitators.’
